That’s a Wrap on the “King of the B” Movies, Roger Corman


Roger Corman, the “King of the Bs” who helped turn out such low-budget classics as “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Attack of the Crab Monsters” and gave many of Hollywood’s most famous actors and directors early breaks, has died. He was 98.

Corman died Thursday at his home in Santa Monica, California, according to a statement released Saturday by his wife and daughters.

“He was generous, open-hearted and kind to all those who knew him,” the statement said. “When asked how he would like to be remembered, he said, ‘I was a filmmaker, just that.’” More

  1. What would he direct now if he was alive and still directing?

    Film directors gotta go with the times:

    I Was A Teenage Transexual.
    Child Attracted Pedophile Aliens From Planet X
    Hair Sniffing Mutants
    The Covid Monsters
    Attack of the Killer Bread Rolls

  2. I don’t think he ever lost sight of the fact that movies are about entertaining people. Period. Even his cheesiness was entertaining! RIP Mr. Corman. Thanks for enjoyable times.

  3. I had just watched the Raven from 1963 one of my favorite horror movies directed by Roger Corman on ROKU this past week. How can you go wrong with a cast of Vincent Price, Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre and a very young Jack Nicholson. I saw this when I was 10 in 1963 at the Lee Theater in downtown Ephrata, Wash. for a quarter. It’s a very humorous, quirky retelling of the Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. NEVERMORE!

  4. What a life! Talk about gusto. The people he met & worked with at their starts is amazing.

    What was the one where you could see the wires holding the flying saucer? House of Usher has given me lifelong fear of being trapped in an enclosed space(like a buried coffin).
